"It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV.

Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?"

Back Again

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 19, 2014, 6:15 AM

For the past three weeks I've been away in Wales on a training course, with hopes of getting a job at the end. It was quite busy with some 10 hour days so I'm glad to be back home and sleep.

But the second weekend was essentially free, so I got the train back to attend Play Expo at the Trafford Centre near Manchester with my cousin. So I pulled together all my bits and pieces I've been collecting and went dressed up as a Bioshock Infinite Founder soldier. My papercraft gun survived besides a minor crease at the back (luckily it didn't rain either) and at least 2 people knew what I was supposed to be! :w00t!:

^ Something like that. The convention was busy but wasn't quite as exciting as last year as there were few major games developers there, and what was there seemed to be mostly FIFA (zzz) on the PS4. Still, many nifty retro machines were set up and a few weird things like a gigantic Game Boy to play Tetris on. And the Fruit Arcade, which using plasmids an electrode on your wrist, allowed you to play games such as Pac Man by squeezing lemons for buttons (Start was a pineapple). It was a transcending experience I tell you. Blew my mind! 

I also got Smash Bros 3DS and am really enjoying it. It is a very competent portable version of the series and plays really well with a ton of content to unlock, and bodes well for the Wii U version, which will likely finally trigger my purchase of the console this Christmas. Historically I only got my Wii in 2008 when Brawl had just come out, so the cycle continues! 

Anyway now that I am back I'm going to be building a little something from Ocarina of Time 3DS, plus I have a few ideas for pictures based off things I did in my doodle pad recently.

Also DeviantArt what have you done? Don't be like Tumblr or Facebook please. Merge back browse/what's hot/undiscovered and lose the CAPS MENU TABS and useless tags ('cos y'know, keywords for the past decade).

About Me:
Postgraduate petroleum geology student and artistic dabbler from the north west of England.

I'm fascinated with historical military designs, particularly from about 1800-1920 and all the related themes that go with them. The Napoleonic and colonial eras up until WWI and the Interwar period are my favourite areas of inspiration. Aww who am I kidding, WW2 is also very interesting to read up on as well.

Besides that I design and build papercraft models using 3D data from games. I've worked on a whole bunch over the years from games on the N64, GC/Wii and PC. The templates are freely distributed in my gallery or over on my old blog. If you ever build any I always thrilled to see any pictures you might have!

Find me on Steam and (rarely) Origin, as XenonRay.
